"The offense of the cross..."
Text: Galatians 5:11b
The apostle Paul knew that the false teachers would stop at nothing to promote their cause. They were not beneath misrepresenting him if they had the opportunity.
And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why
do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross
has ceased. I could wish that those who trouble you
would even cut themselves off!
